I was always wondering, if the thumbnail borders made it better or worse? Would you click on this video based on this image?
Or what would you think if there was no border around it? I think it makes it pop a little bit more, but I would like to hear your opinion!

Personally I would click on this video and I like the border! I am no expert but looks like a cool video. :)

The borders are definitely okay. I'd click the thumbnail if it ever was shown to me, because these are the type of videos I want to see as it's different from what I'm normally shown.

And also, i want to know what happens after they jump.

I think the bright border does make it pop out more. I have seen darker borders used in other channels and it doesn't do much for me except that it does help with branding. But the bright border does seem to give it a kick! Good on you for bringing this topic up! I think I am going to try a couple of very bright borders myself!

I use a border, too. I use a different color depending on the topic I do for that video, but I pretty much use on blue for most things. Looks like Captain Kirk's old viewscreen! It's subtle, but it's there, and ties everything together.
